The Inclusive Environment Briefings (IE Briefings), is a new Construction Industry Council initiative for 2018, which provides regular technical and policy updates; with comments on key initiatives and current issues relevant to the achievement of an accessible and inclusive environment.

The briefings bring together leading policy-makers in the construction industry, access and inclusion expertise and senior industry players to discuss the key topics in an informal setting.

Chaired by Tony Burton, Partner at Gardiner and Theobald and CIC’s Inclusive Environment Champion, the Briefings run four times a year, from 9.30am – 11.30am with two speakers, the opportunity to ask questions and network with experts in the field.
